Nightcrawler

Thriller 1h 57m 2014

AroView: A nervy and quite brilliant satire with Jake Gyllenhaal unforgettable as a petty thief who muscles into the world of crime journalism, shooting footage of accidents and crimes in Los Angeles and selling it to unscrupulous news channels.

Finding a group of freelance camera crews, he muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling, where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.

Original and effective as a high tension thriller and provocative as a commentary on the collateral damage of unbridled capitalism.

“A ghoulish and wickedly funny satire on journalism, the job market and self-help culture.” ~ Henry Barnes, The Guardian.
